Unusual promise a behind the scenes look at Lauper's personal
“Each 30-minute episode gives viewers
an all-access pass into the personal and professional life of one of
pop culture's most beloved and influential icons as she juggles her
many roles, including rock star, mother, wife, Broadway composer, New
York Times best-selling author and philanthropist,” the network
said in a press release.
“Considering Cyndi's hectic schedule,
her family life with her husband of 20 years, actor David Thornton
(My Sister's Keeper, The Notebook), and the couple's
14-year-old son, Declyn, plays a role throughout the series as Cyndi
struggles with the same issues all working mothers deal with:
splitting time between work and family and giving adequate attention
Last year, Lauper, a vocal supporter of
gay rights, opened her True
Colors Residence for LGBT homeless teens in Harlem. The
facility, the first of its kind in New York City, accommodates 30
young people, offering them permanent housing. Residents pay rent
based on their income and receive job placement help.
